Mini Tillers with Honda Engines Recalled Due to Fire Hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product.

Name of Product: Honda and Mantis Mini Tillers

Units: About 6,150

Manufacturer: American Honda Motor Co., of Torrance, Calif.

Hazard: A rubber grommet that is part of the engine's fuel tank may crack and leak fuel, posing a fire hazard.

Incidents/Injuries: None reported.

Description: The recalled mini tillers have Honda GX25 mini four-stroke engines and their engine serial numbers can be found on the engine near the fuel tank cap. Both brands come in red and black.

Honda Mini Tiller: Model number FG110 with serial numbers GCALT 1696948 to 1700567.

Manufactured: The engines were made in Thailand and assembled in the United States using domestic and globally sourced products.

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using any mini tiller with engines in the affected serial number ranges and contact any Honda Power Equipment dealer or Honda Engine dealer (Mantis owners only) to arrange to have the fuel tank assembly replaced free of charge. Registered owners of the recalled mini tillers will be sent a notice by mail.
